i have one of these and for other camping/festival trips, i love it. i also have a little pop-up tent to put it in.

my thought was...is this really needed? maybe only use it for at night?

Needed? No. Not for most.

I didn't even try a bottle + funnel until 2010 or so.

A bucket is "too much" for me, for example. Too much work! Too much space. Etc.

Everyone's different. The trick is finding out what makes you, as an individual, comfortable.

I'm on the fence whether the convenience of a pee jug is worth the very real risk of tipping it over uncapped inside your tent.

sit it outside the door when not in use. ta da !
Asq.. for me it's essential. I pee about 3 times during the night & schlepping to the portos is a pain & I don't like my "nighty" dragging on the floor of those things. :oops: so yeah. It's an idividual decision.

Probably a repeat post...But in the name of all things good and holey please PLEASE make sure the jug is big enough! There is nothing worse than overfilling the jug in the middle of the night. Well, ok, spilling it is worse I guess... But over-filling the jug comes with it's own set of problems i.e. trying to stop and what did you hit when you lost aiming control. What are you still hitting because you can't solve the stopping puzzle. Damn, did I really just drop the bottle?
A handle. I like a nice handle on the jug too.
Those water bottles from Reno are the best pee jugs ever.

I can get about 3 bladders full into my "Simply Orange" jug before having to empty it.

Has a large mouth, a handle, and the screw on top is easy to use even in the dark. 8)

Yeah, if you're going to try a bottle, don't select something really small. :lol: A 100-oz detergent bottle is good. Opaque, & unlikely to be confused with a water bottle.

And I was all hung up on the mechanics. Do we keep putting water down everyone's throat or do we have everyone do two or three, count their votes on those and do some sort of algorithm to figure it all out...

I think we should accept all types of decorated jugs for consideration.

Any thought on disaster prep 5 gallon buckets, with a garbage liner.

It's going to be bulky. unjon uses something like that, or carries if for emergencies.

Brilliant! Use the flashlight to see well enough to pee into the boots, while thinking about Dr. Who.

THE TARDIS! THAT'S WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE!

I was gonna mention, you can remove the battery and piss in the flashlight. More discreet than emptying a rubber boot.

Thus far my ideal solution has been the liquid laundry detergent jug. Free in other people's recycle bins, wide mouth, pours well, has a screw-on cap, holds 3-4 bladders-full, and not confused with beverage. In general, peeing inside your tent will require a headlamp, a funnel (depending on your physiology), and wherewithal.

If these had a wood bottom and the funnels could also be made of wood and you could burn them when your at the end of the week :)

You can't over prepare for BRC?

I disagree.

This would win the sadist category for the MNG ... hands down (or up)!
